Topp Performance Martial Arts
There are also some additional benefits for kids. Most dojos, and certainly ours here at Topp Performance, focus as much on teaching kids respect and self-control as we do on teaching the art itself. All kids benefit from these lessons, and even kids with behavior issues show noticeable improvement in their demeanor with regular martial arts training.
Here at Topp Performance, we teach KickBoxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. What follows below is a partial list of the many benefits of martial arts for your fitness, belief in yourself, and mood.
At Topp Performance, martial arts for kids is as much about teaching respect and self-control as it is about defense and fitness.
Full Body Workout
Any kind of martial arts training is an intense cardio, full-body workout that hits every major muscle group. You’ll develop better muscle tone, endurance, flexibility, balance and strength.
Martial artists are often the most flexible of any kind of athlete. As part of your training, you’ll be encouraged to develop greater flexibility. This flexibility will pay benefits – and not just in being able to kick higher either. Flexibility helps to prevent injury when doing anything physical, and also goes a long way toward keeping us mobile as we age.
Improved Cardio Fitness
Did we mention it’s an intense cardio workout? Your sensei will push you to your limits and beyond and you will achieve new levels of cardio fitness beyond what any other form of exercise, save perhaps CrossFit (we offer that too), can offer you. You have no idea how exhausting twenty minutes of continuous sparring can be until you experience it for yourself!
Looking to shed a few pounds? Combined with a proper diet (see our Nutrition section for more information) the kind of intense cardio workout you’ll get from studying a martial art will melt the fat off your body and replace it with lean muscle.
